Please Help the Victims of the Haitian Earthquake
If you have the opportunity, and feel that the desire to help the victims of the earthquake in Haiti, one way to help is to make a donation to Doctors Without Borders. The reason I like to donate to them is that the majority of their funding goes to directly help people, not to administrative costs. Through the Yarn Harlot's blog, over $600,000 has been donated to this wonderful organization by knitters over the last few years, and Stephanie has made an appeal to knitters once again to help in any way they can, if only by donating a few dollars. You can read her post for today to see what she has to say about how to help, and what is the most useful type of donation to make. It warms my heart to see how people working together for a common cause can make a difference, one dollar at a time. And it is heartbreaking to think of the hundreds of thousands of people whose lives have been changed forever because of this force of nature.
